About Domaine Chavy 2019 Puligny-Montrachet, Les Clavoillons 1er Cru
The estate of Gerard Chavy has now been split into two separate estates by his sons, Jean-Louis Chavy, and Alain Chavy. Jean-Louis has built a brand new winemaking facility and a deep temperature controlled cellar at the bottom of the village. Vinification is classic barrel fermentation with temperature control and only natural yeasts. For the elevage of the wines the use of new oak is restrained with just 25% new oak for Premier Crus.
This wine is 2019 Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru Clavoillons. the Clavoillons vineyard lies right in the middle of the appellation between Perrieres to the north and Les Pucelles on the south side. Here Jean-Louis has three quarters of an acre of vines planted in 1952 just below Folatieres.
This a lively but structured wine made for aging. Lot’s of minerality, green fruits, apple, pear, some stone fruit, hint of nuttiness (more with aging) and notable acidity.
